There’s no great surprise that the wonderful UY ladies knit up a storm for my baby girl! Even though her mother knit everything too big (I practically swaddled her in one of the sweaters I made the other day, determined she would wear it no matter what!) she is still surrounded by yarn and lovely knitwear at all times. It’s a good thing I know a few people who already have babies, so they have a better concept of size. 10 lbs is a lot smaller than it sounds. More than a few knit items kindly made it my way, but I thought I would start with the most size appropriate item: the Buga Baby Bunting
There seems to be some sort of debate as to whether or not babies like to be swaddled, the only conclusion I can draw is that it depends on the babe. My babe prefers the arms free approach, couldn’t even get her to put her arms in for a picture. She does, however, like to be warm. The cold weather up here on the mountain means baby must be well layered and the Buga Baby Bunting has been perfect for sleeping. Feel are easily accesible for a quick diaper change too. 4 skeins of Spud and Chloe outer will make this charming item and because it’s a thicker yarn it will knit up nice and quick. Thanks Anina!
